I booked a room for 2 adults & 2 children. We checked into our room to find there was only one bed. Reception quickly fixed the problem & moved us to another room.

We had a seaview room (521), spectacular view. Really nice room too, neat, plenty of space, one of the best showers imaginable. Location is great too, with free tourist bus outside to get into city centre. A complete steal for the price. No free wi-fi was the only downside.

We arrived mid afternoon and was greeted by a very friendly and efficient staff member. Our room was on the ninth floor with a spectacular ocean and mountain view. Everything in the room was first class and I would recommend it to anyone travelling to Wollongong

Stayed for one night to attend a wedding. Nice location....but very overpriced in regard to food...average looking lunch buffet AUD 75 per person! Lunch a la carte was also quite expensive and quality was average. Rooms are OK but balconirs need a good clean.... At that rate not worthwhile....

For the price i paid to stay i was very dissapointed in the place. The elevators were not functioning properly and hit several family memebers because the sensor didn't atop the doors while we walked in. The food at the wedding function was terrible over cooked.
